Cohen Children’s Medical center wants all of our children to travel safely in cars. Installing a car seat for younger children and babies can be a challenge. At the car seat check event you will work with certified child passenger safety (CPS) technicians, who will check to make sure your car seats are installed correctly and teach you how to use and install a car seat on your own. This is a hands on educational event. When you leave, you should be confident that your child’s seat is installed correctly and feel comfortable reinstalling it on your own. This may be the most important thing you learn. Here are some tips on how you can prepare for the event:
 

Install the seat in your vehicle before your appointment. Be sure to use the instructions that came with the child car seat and the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual regarding car seats.

Bring the car seat manual and the vehicle owner’s manual with you to your appointment.

Be prepared to learn, not just watch the CPS technician install the car seat. They're trained to teach you.

If your child is already born, know your child's weight and height, and bring your child with you. If possible, also bring another adult to help watch the child while you are learning and installing.

**Please note the event is held in the visitor's parking garage across from Katz Women's Hospital.
